Writing workshop by the artist, writer, sculptor and performer Sophie Jung on the polyvocality of objects, sculptures and existences within her monographic exhibition on the first floor of Casino Luxembourg.
The workshop analyses how objects can be read. Sometimes the reading is immediate, automatic; sometimes it requires careful attention. By means of examples, the workshop shows that connotations related to objects are not neutral, and that a discourse can be disrupted by intentionally changing the relationship between signifier and signified.
With reference to theorists and writers such as Helen Cixous, Maria Lugones, Audre Lorde, Viktor Shklovsky and Elfriede Jelinek, participants are invited to write texts, individually and in groups, in order to create a collective text sculpture through and around materialities in the space.
To bring along: pen, paper, 5 objects that have a particular meaning for you or objects that you are attracted to based on their shape, colour or purely by their existence in the world.
You can bring your meal or buy a snack on the spot.
